Welcome to my peace blog!

This blog is my online peace journal with information and reflection on a variety of peace topics -- personal, local, global -- as well as peace and justice related links that I find helpful and/or inspiring. For more formal information on peace, justice and nonviolence, I urge you to explore the webpages of The Fellowship of Reconciliation USA (see FOR), of which I am a member and join our New York Fellowship of Reconciliation (see NYFOR) listserv. Also, check out my alternate Peace Hugs blog as well as my links page.

"There is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence - there is only a choice between nonviolence and nonexistence."

An Open Letter to Air America Radio

Dear Air America Radio:

First we lost Unfiltered, then Morning Sedition, and now Mike Malloy!?!! Mike adds color and flavor to AAR and there are nights when I gotta hear him. Thom Hartmann (who was not on NYC's new WWRL 1600 lineup at all this weekend) is my fave along with Rachel Maddow, but there's something wickedly endearing about Mike. Bring Mike back, please. (And whatever happened to Lizz Winstead?!? And Marc Maron's West [Left?] Coast show!)

And do something about that awful signal and screwed up WWRL programming (weekend mornings are compromised -- and Armstrong Williams weekdays is gawd-awful!!). It is not fair to people who don't have computers -- or can't be tied to streaming. Thank God for podcasting, but Live is the best. I'm in WESTERN Queens and the signal is spotty, especially on portables. EGAD!!

But of special concern is the lack of communication with listeners, including us premium members. This is incomprehensible and truly bad judgment. I've listened to AAR from Day One [see March 31, 2004 post] and have been a cheerleader ever since -- but enough, already. We need more Thom -- and we need Mike back. What is going to happen to little Molly Malloy. Give us variety on AAR -- but stick to the LEFT, PLEASE. And thanks.

Peace Hugs,
Kate Anne

"Our country currently lives under a single-party form of government. One ideology (pro-corporate, coddling the rich, neglecting the middle class, patronizing the poor) is governing like there's no tomorrow. Should they continue, they'll be right."
